New ApostlesOnye Akpa/Oshi Onwu ... 7-inch
Academy/Voodoo Funk, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99 12.99
Early 70s Afro Funk treasures by the Apostles on a stunning 45 – material mined in a joint effort by Academy & Voodoo Funk – both among of the most reverent and respectful diggers of rare African recordings around these days! The Apostles have a unique vibe of their own, though they carry the influences of, and a love for, the global funk and soul of their time. "Onye Akpa" pulls us right in with loose-limbed, yet walloping drums and a relentless rhythm. Punctuated with woozy organ and sweet guitar lines under shout soul vocals, this one kills all the way! "Oshi Onwu" on the other side is cut from the same sweaty cloth, begging you to shout along with the vocals and then slays you with a funky drum break and limber guitar solo. Top notch all the way down to the picture sleeve. Don't miss out! 7-inch, Vinyl record

El RegoEl Rego (plus bonus 45 & download) ... LP
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy LP & 7 Inch ... $16.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl version includes code for album download plus a bonus 45 with 2 extra tracks: "E Ma Non Tin Me" and "Se Na Min".)

Mona FinnihI Love Myself/People Of The World ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, percussion, and sing-song vocals! The horns give the whole thing a bit more of a straight Afro Funk punch at times – which balances things out nicely. The flipside is every bit as charming as the main track – with similarly bright lyrics, and cool guitar bits that almost come across with a steel pan sort of feel at times! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Very cool package – a pic sleeve with a poster too!)

First PlanetTop Of The World/I Want To Thank You Baby ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package! "Top Of The World" has this snapping sort of vibe that's like a great post-disco cut from the US – a bit of funk and club mixed together, with very cool processing on the lyrics that almost bring in some slight Miami elements as well! "I Want To Thank You Baby" follows with even a stronger Miami vibe – lots of spacey keyboards over riffing guitars and fast drums – almost like some lost 12" single from the vaults of TK Records! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited pressing – with a bonus poster attached to the sleeve!)

Nath & Martin BrothersMoney ... LP
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Afro Funk, but with a nice undercurrent of fuzz too – lots of nice flares around the guitars and keyboard bits, but always in way that keeps the funky rhythms right on track! Nath & Martin Brothers were the backing group on the famous Pax Nicholas album – but they work here on their own in even more hard-hitting territory – a relatively spare blend of heavy beats, chopping guitar, and some wickedly cooking organ lines – often without any vocals at all, and with a song length that's shorter and more focused than other Nigerian grooves of the time! These guys like somewhere in a place between James Brown and Fela Kuti – the styles of the latter with the focus of the former – but have a power and presence that's all their own, and which has made this killer set one of the true Afro Funk gems from the 70s. Titles include "Baby", "Livingstone", "Ota Oji", "Money", "Walker Walker Baby", and "My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tex Soul & The BayonetsUto Nwa/Osi Na Ngada ... 7-inch
Academy/Voodoo Funk, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Breaking drums, popping organ, and fuzzy guitar – all exploding at the start of this rare funky nugget – and setting fire to the tune right from the beginning! There's a nervous, jumpy sort of energy to "Uto Nwa" – one that not only sets it apart from other Afro funk gems of the time – but which also has enough core funk to earn Tex the "soul" in his name on the cover! The flipside follows up with "Osi Na Nganda" – a tune with raw conga rhythms, bursts of freaky organ, and this loping groove that's really wonderful 7-inch, Vinyl record

New El RegoVimado Wingnan/E Nan Mian Nuku ... 7-inch
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wow! Straight up incredible Afro Funk from Benin's El Rego Et Ses Commandos – the pummeling, yet soulful "Vimado Wingnan" and the slower, more hypnotic "E Nan Mian Nuku" – rare early 70s numbers on Daptone! "Vimado Wingnan" is one of those tracks that's so incredible that it should be an Afro Funk staple, yet we have to admit we were just recently hipped to it. The drums and percussion are amazing and it's got a wild organ in the mix that gives it something of a psych funk feel. Some flute lightens things up just a bit and the vocals are nice and funky, too. The flip isn't as intense, but it's got a rhythm that's just as insistent in it's less perspiring way. The material was brought to Daptone by Frank Gossner of Voodoo Funk and a full album is promised. We cannot wait! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New VariousLagos Disco Inferno Vol 2 ... CD
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An even deeper set of African club tracks than the great first volume – and a limited CD release that brings together all the rare singles issued on the Voodoo Funk 12" series! The work here is every bit as disco as you'd guess from the title – but there's also a special sort of sound, too – a powerful groove that's much more underground than mainstream club work of the time – with plenty of echoes of the Afro Funk modes that had been breaking big in Nigeria during the 70s, mixed with some of the cool touches of the American indie scene – the kind of odd sounds you'd hear bubbling up on labels like P&P. There's a lot of great keyboard lines on the tracks, but with a rough-edged feel that's more moogy and spacey than tight or slick – and the vocals are mostly in English, but very basic – so that they slide along with the hypnotic rhythms of the tunes. Titles include "Disco Maniac" by Tirogo, "Move" by Eno Louis, "I Want To Thank You Baby" by First Planet, "Time Factor" by Tony Grey, "I Love Myself" by Mona Finnih, "Listen To The Music" by Bayo Damazio, "Hot Love" by Eno Louis, "Top Of The World" by First Planet, "We Like To Party" by Tirogo, and "You Are The One" by Tony Grey. 12 cuts in all – both sides of each of the 12" single reissues!

New Eno LouisMove/Hot Love ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
"Move" is an Afro Funk killer – but unlike anything else you might have heard! The cut's got these riffing guitars that are familiar for the scene, but captured with the sharpness of some South Bronx street jam – with Eno doing these English lyrics that are spoken more than sung – almost a cross between Afro Funk and early Sugar Hill Records! "Hot Love" is more of a club cut overall, but still mighty nice – with Louis doing a sexy lead vocal over the top! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Bayo DamazioListen To The Music/Dizzy With Love ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1981. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wicked bit of Nigerian funk from the start of the 80s – served up in a very hip blend of Afro Disco and leaner street soul modes! The groove's got some sweet keyboards alongside the catchy sing-song lyric – very uncomplicated, which really lets the focus stay on the rhythms – which are almost in a Tom Tom Club or "Rapture" sort of style! The flipside is equally catchy, too – a cool cut with a stark approach to the groove that's almost influenced by South Bronx party music – but served up here in a unique Afro style too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A groove that's way different than the disco you might hear on this side of the Atlantic in the late 70s – more a tight Afro Funk approach, served up here with riffing guitars and lots of tight horns that descend in a really cool way with the vocals! "We Like To Party" follows in a similar groove – almost echoing the rhythm of the main cut, but with some more playful chorus lyrics too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes with a cool poster on the front!)

Christie Azumah & The Uppers InternationalDin Ya Sugri ... LP
Superfly (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Great Ghana grooves from the 70s – a smoking set that features some lead vocals from Christie Azuma, but lots more sweet sounds from The Uppers International Dance Band – a really well-titled combo, given the positive spirit of their music! The tunes bubble along wonderfully in this buoyant blend of percussion and guitar – often topped by horns in this super-sunny way, but with a really rootsy feel overall! The guitar lines ring out with these cool chromatic elements that almost make them a second sort of "voice" on the record – and Christie sings on half the tracks on the set, leaving other vocals to members of the band. Titles include "Din Ya Sugri", "Kapaa", "Ja Wenle", "Aja Wondo", "Naam", "Eye A Kyerew Me", and "Ba Mai Ayikin Banza". LP, Vinyl record album

Black BloodBlood Brother, Blood Sister ... LP
Chrysalis, 1977. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Later work from the combo also known as Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice – but still pretty darn nice – and served up in a style that has more straight Afro-Funk grooving than you'd expect! There's a nicely tight small combo feel to the whole thing – more African than before, especially on the lyrics, which are often sung together in chant form – but still with plenty of American funky touches on the bass, percussion, and keyboards. Black Blood do a version of "A.I.E. (A Mwana)", plus the tracks "Voodoo", "Shaba", "Wela Wela", and "Ewohe Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

BongolianBlueprint ... CD
Blow Up (UK), 2006. New Copy ... $17.99
Bongos and keyboards galore – and a stunning second full length set from London's Bongolian! We've always loved these guys, but they've definitely taken things to the next level on this album – and have honed their groove down to a key focus on the elements that make them best – the tightly breaking drums of their funky side, and the sweet keyboard riffs of their jazzier one! Most of the instrumentation on the set comes from stark acoustic percussion (not just bongos but congas, timbales, and more) – plus sweet keyboard lines from Hammond, Fender Rhodes, and Farfisa – all used sparingly, but with a really punched-up effect that goes great with the drums. And while the group have some of the mod touches of earlier work, the sound here is much more in the heavy funk mode – bunring beautifully through an all instrumental set that includes "Agent Hardigs", "Del Ray", "Sad Curtis", "House Of Voodoo", "The Hoodwink", "Victoria Park", "Soul Caravan", "Routemaster Ride", and "Freddie's Dreaming".

Vaudou GameApiafo ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool contemporary group with roots in Tojo – hotbed of African voodoo culture, which is a strong inspiration on their sound! The music takes an older style of voodoo chants, and fuses it onto a more funk-based approach – one that draws on inspirations from 70s west African funk, but in a way that's more subtle than most of the other contemporary groups – a mode that still uses horns, but really strips down the sound a lot, so that the hypnotic vocal passages really take center stage! The production is great – very much in a vintage mode – and these guys are way than just another Afro Funk group, and have instead really stumbled onto something fresh and vital. Titles include "Wrong Road", "Ata Calling", "No Problem", "Dangerous Bees", "No Way To Go", "I Need A Job", and "Meva". CD

Circle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Raw mod and gritty funk rock grooves from team Le Beat Bespoke – the fourth set in the series – bubblegum garage, fuzzed out pop, funky percussion and wailing organs – this just might be the best in the series to date! Compiler Rob Bailey out does himself here, once again digging deep for obscure mod singles, groovy slabs of garage rock, with a few left turns such as a heavy Latin gem and a more psych-steeped number or two – propulsive, exciting numbers regardless of genre affections and fiery dancefloor ready rock tunes all the way! 20 tailor made cuts on the CD – a brief notes on each tune, all of which are exciting and groovy as can be! Titles include "Voodoo Medicine Man" by Jerry & Jeff, "False Alarm Love" by Peaceful Coalition, "Eg Veit Ao Pu Kemar" by Trubrat, "Feelin" by Joy Unlimited, "No Thank You Mr Pusher" by Big Tom, "King Of Siam" by East Of Eden", "Comin On Down" by The Twilights and more.

New DaktarisSoul Explosion ... LP
Desco/Daptone, 1998. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest grooves from the legendary Desco Records years – a brilliant album of modern Afro Funk done by The Daktaris – in a groove that's just as hard-hitting as any of Fela's work from the 70s! The album was one of the first to bring back an older African style to current funk – and even years later, it's still one of the best examples of the sound – a razor-sharp session that helped set the stage for better-known Antibalas work to come! Percussion and guitar is super-heavy throughout – produced with that bare-bones Desco style, and handled in a way that makes you think the record might be some treasure from mid 70s Nigeria – a trick the label tried to pull when it was released! Cuts include a cover of Fela's "Upside Down", James Brown's "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose", and the originals "Super Afro-Beat", "Daktari Walk", "Voodoo Soul Stew", and "Quiet Man Is A Dead Man".

New Emma Donovan & The PutbacksDawn ... CD
Hope Street (Australia), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Richly soulful vocals and gritty funk backdrops from singer Emma Donovan and the funky Putbacks band – an great little set from the Australian scene! We had a pretty good idea of how strong the Putbacks are, thanks to a stellar couple of singles – but their stylistic breadth comes into full display here, in backing an excellent singer. Emma is an indigenous Australian with a voice that can pull off gritty psych funk jams and more gentle, if still nicely raw soul with equal skill – and as the primary songwriter here, she shows us just how strong she his as both a singer and songwriter. Solid work all around! Includes "Black Woman", "My Goodness", "Dawn", "Mother", "Daddy", "Keep Me In Your Reach", "Come Back To Me", "Voodoo" and "Over Under Away". CD

New Stelvio CiprianiOrgasmo Nero (Sex & Black Magic/Voodoo Baby/Black Orgasm) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet sexy jungle soundtrack – issued for a film that appeared with many different erotic titles – but only this one great set of grooves from Stelvio Cipriani! Given the island setting of the narrative, there's a good amount of acoustic percussion in the mix – congas and other instruments used in ways that really work nicely with the keyboards and guitar – at a level that often comes off with a sort of sweet exotica funk approach! The style is almost a mix of Stelvio's usual groove with the 70s experiments of Mandigo – with a vibe that's completely sublime all the way through, and every bit as arresting as the image on the cover. And as usual with Cipriani, the mellow cuts are as great as the funky ones – a perfect and careful use of the best electric elements, all without ever going too far over the top – or ever sounding too clunky or commercial. CD features 28 tracks in all, and some great notes too! CD

Two funk bombs from Australia's Bamboos! The group's moddish take on Billy Butler's "Tighten Up" honestly couldn't be any tighter – kicking off with some of the fastest, funkiest trap work we've heard on a recent single, before settling into a groove with punchy electric guitar work, organ, sax and wonderfully funky flute line! "Voodoo Doll" is a slower number with a fat bass line, and loosely propulsive drums and guitar that leave lots of room for the funky organ work. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Booker TEvergreen (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... $7.99
A surprisingly great album by Booker T – recorded after his Memphis years with The MGs, and his duets with Priscilla – and done in a sweetly mellow style that has Booker emerging as a whole new style of songwriter! As with all the post-MG albums, Booker sings lead vocals on all tracks – in a gently, almost folksy mode that fits beautifully with the compressed production of the set. There's almost a Terry Callier-ish quality to a few of the cuts, and on others, Booker's hitting a cool LA style that's kind of a west coast take on the Memphis vibe – but with a few more rock-based touches. Book plays a bit of organ and some keyboards on the set, and titles include "Jamaica Song", "Mama Stewart", "Flamingo", "Tennessee Voodoo", "Lie To Me", and "Evergreen". CD features lots of bonus tracks too – "Life Is Funky", "Take Me To The River", "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Higher & Higher", "Love Is Strange", and "Evergreen (single version)". CD

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $8.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for the migration of the cosmic jazz sound onto the dancefloor – a tune that's as funky as it is righteous – but other cuts on the album slow down the pace a bit too, and show off the mellower, more introspectively spiritual side that's always made Lonnie way more than just a funky jazz artist. Easily the best place to start in the all-great Lonnie Liston Smith catalog – and featuring tracks that include "Expansions", "Summer Days", "Desert Nights", "Shadows", "My Love", "Peace", and "Voodoo Woman".

Funky grooves merge into sweet soulful moments – on this wonderful debut from an obscure Chicago group! The music is clubby at points, but also mellows out at others – mixing bassy grooves with spacier moments that have an especially nice vibe – and which really showcase a sophisticated modern soul side of the group! And the production work features plenty of old talents from Brunswick Records – including Chicago soul giants Carl Davis, Eugene Record, and Sonny Sanders – who really put the record together with a lot of care, at a level that should have made these guys huge. A great lost set, but well worth discovering – and tracks include "Volcanic Voodoo", "Take It To The Top", "What Makes You Wanna Lie To Me", "You're My Everything", "Show Him The Way To Go", and "Worry".

A stone classic in the genre of bad-rapping female soul – and one of the key albums cut by the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash! The arrangements and production are handled by David Rubinson, who gives the set a nicely polished feel that gets a bit past some of the slight cliches that had been creeping into the girls work – a style that shows them equally well skilled at mellower numbers than at the funkier rockier tunes that were their more familiar stock in trade. Titles include "Come Into My Life", "A Man In A Trenchcoat (Voodoo)", "Get You Something New", "Going Down Makes Me Shiver", "Gypsy Moths", and "Who's Watching The Watcher?". LP, Vinyl record album
